The Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad built this luxury hotel in 1881 as a resort destination for train travelers. Hot Springs on the property along the Gallinas River was the major draw. Closed as a hotel in 1903 and had various tenants over the years. The building and 100 acres of land Was purchased by Armand Hammer in 1981 for use as a United World College campus. Underwent a massive restoration in 2000-2001. It is an imposing 90,000 square foot building in Queen Anne style constructed with locally quarried red sandstone and slate. Tours are available through the school or from a tour guide service in nearby Las Vegas.
